marco rubio has been talking tough about benghazi for months. >> one of the narratives that the obama campaign has laid out, osama bin laden is dead, they e retreated. you start to say do they allow any story to emerge that counters that narrative. is that why they told us that benghazi was a popular uprising, because it ran counter to their campaign narrative. >> and so the pressure was on senator rubio to deliver to all his fans all the fire and brim stone they had a right to expect. he was not just facing the secretary of state, who took responsibility for what happened in benghazi. he was facing possibly the next democratic nominee for president. tonight, the marco rubio fans could not be more disappointed. >> one of the things that i'm more interested in exploring to you, how information flows within the state department. were you ever asked to participate in any sort of internal or inter-agency meeting before this attack with regard to the deteriorating security situation in libya? did this issue come up with regard to the inability of the libya government to protect our instit
policy speech coming tomorrow in las vegas. there is the immigration 8 right there. marco rubio a part of that immigration 8. and he wrote a las vegas review op-ed saying my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. didn't use the word amnesty but that's what he's talking about. >> you know what other word he didn't use, thomas? illegal. so he intended to talk about illegal immigrants, illegal immigration. and we've seen a change in the rhetoric of how marco rubio is talking about immigration. marco has come to the table and really put his face forward. what he has done is he's the enforcer. he's the one in this gang of eight that said we can have a path to citizenship but we've got to keep beefing up the border and we have to look at the technology to track the people who are here. so he wants to make himself known as the tough cowboy in all of this. >> he's a latino republican wit
. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring i
like marco rubio, for instance, and others, and also you have the chamber of commerce, you have some republican vested interest. i would say the budget and immigration are the two areas, spending and immigration. >> can he get through some simple things on gun control, if not a ban on assault weapons. that might be impossible with republican caucus, but universal background checks? some smaller things that polls show most republicans around the country support. >> yeah, maybe. i don't know. i would support it. i can't speak for the others. i would think there is a chance that maybe on gun trafficking some things and it may be watered down somewhat, but he could at least make some progress. there could be a bill signing and you get people together and that could make it better for the next year and a half after that. >> i want to ask you something i know that seems unrelated but it is very important for the president. it's on foreign policy but it's on what's happening now in north africa. we had benghazi and now algeria and northern mali with the french. does he need to do more with
. there are republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. martha: ric chris wallace tphoeupbs mnow, anchor. i want to talk to you a little bit about the immigration issue. when i hear about marco rubio and see when he's working on now, you can't help but look forward. he had this idea about immigration before the president came out with his plan and mitt romney had ten opportunity to sign onto it. now condoleezzaa rice seems to be saying, we have to learn some lessons from the last election, the g.o.p. does in terms of how they treat this issue. >> absolutely. i mean look at the exit polls, 71% of hispanics, hiss are the fastest growing demographic to america and 71% of them voted for obama. back eight years prior to that in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of hispanics. romney continue even get 30%. that is the difference in a state like florida, and a a bunch much other states around the country. republicans have got to find way to say to hispanics that we are on your side, we welcome you, value you, and
alongside of him. they also include marco rubio from florida and geoff flake, the other senate from arizonaother senate from arizona. democrats insisted any immigration reform bill had to include a path to citizenship. had to do something about these 11 million people estimated, i think it's higher than that, who had been here, came here illegally, have lived here a long time had their families have jobs, have houses have kids in school. some have kids in the military belong to local churches members of the community, had to do something being them and allow -- give them a path to staying here permanently as american citizenship. democrats always insisted on that. and the president has insisted as have democrats, that this all has to be contained in one bill. it can't be little piece meal things. republicans, for their side, still have this broken record kind of demand that we have to have tougher controls at the border when, in fact we already have tougher controls at the border, more agents there than ever before, fewer people coming across. but at any
to citizenship. marco rubio, senator marco rubio has been talking about that, and we have champions on the democratic side. so i think here we have a potential new dynamic, which is rather than one party focusing on the other, they're focusing on what the electorate said. and that's the pressure and space to go forward. >> terry, what about the violence against women act? the 112th congress failed to pass a reauthorization of that. >> i think is going to continue to try to block it, and shame on him. i think there are a number of republicans, and frankly we have a stronger house now than the 113th. we have a significantly stronger senate which did pass a good bill in the 112th congress. so we are going to face hurdles. eric cantor has simply refused to pass it in the lame duck session because he couldn't get past the idea that tribal authorities would have jurisdiction over perpetrators of sexual assault. i've heard it said what does that make him -- he is coddling rapist. i'm not going to say whether he is or not. but that is certainly the impression he has given to some people. >>
to benchmarks on border security and enforcement? >> well, i do like the things that marco rubio has been laying out. and i did talk to one of the members on the other -- my side of the aisle working with dick durbin and he was very optimistic last night at a dinner i attended. again, the details matter. i think right now, they are at the talking point stage and this needs to be reduced to legislation. the last time this blew up, was when it was reduced to legislation, so it is my hope we will come up with a bipartisan solution. i do think that enforcement has to be a big part of it, but, again i like many of the principles that marco rubio has been laying out and i think he's a member of this group and i look forward to seeing what they produce. >> chris: finally, you are both members of the senate foreign relations committee which heard from secretary of state claim th -- secretary of state hillary clinton about the benghazi terror attack. here's what got the most attention. >> alisyn: we have four dead americans, because of a protest or guys out for a walk and they decide to kill some america
cain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, and jeff flake. this would offer an immigration plan for millions here illegally, it would also have an employment verification. and cracking down on companies that hired unauthorized workers. the president, as you know, carol, will also be taking up this issue this week. he'll be heading to las vegas tomorrow. he met monday with the congressional hispanic caucus to sort of talk and preview this plan that he's already put out, but he'll be highlighting tomorrow. >> brianna keilar reporting live from the white house this morning. >>> also today, about two hours from now, president obama plans to meet with police chiefs and sheriffs from around the nation to talk about reducing gun violence. the police chiefs of newtown, connecticut, and aurora, colorado, saw their share of gun violence last year also expected to attend. even as the president convenes this meeting, a law enforcement backlash continues. a wisconsin sheriff is now encouraging citizens to take up arms and not solely rely on law enforcement for protection. >> with officers laid off and furloug
carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fastest growing minority group in the u.s. senator john mccain acknowledged that reality yesterday. >> give y
that bipartisan group of senators, marco rubio leading an effort in the senate where they are coming around a bipartisan plan. we might see it come to fruition next week. it's important, the president we're told had a meeting today with hispanic caucus. tuesday he is going las vegas. big hispanic population there to give a speech laying out his principles here. bottom line is both parties seem to start to yell behind a plan we might see movement on in weeks ahead. >> bret: we'll follow it. thank you. vice president biden down the road in virginia today. generally pro-gun state, the talk about gun control. see how the round table control in richmond after they worked on gun safety following the shootings at virginia tech. there are few subjects more divisive in the last half century than abortion. no day on the californian der that brings pro-life advocates to the like the annual protection against the supreme court ruling that legalized them. >> unadapted by the cold temperatures and threat of snow they came to washington for four decades to instill a culture in life and nation that they sa
of the members of the group was republican senator marco rubio from florida. conservative, la toy know and possible g.o.p. contender in 2016. >> i think today is an important first step, in what is going to be a significantly complicated journey. the issue is not simple. there are 11 million human beings in this country that are undocumented. it's not something anybody is happy about or what they want to see happen but it's what happened. we have obligation and needs to address the reality of the situation that we face. >> kimberly: well l the white house play ball? here's jay. >> we will be working with congress, with both houses, both parties to help bring about a result that is a detailed, specific bill. that can win bipartisan support, in congress. and that this problem can sign that meets the very specific principles the president put forward. >> kimberly: what did you think of the press conference? >> dana: interesting and good first step to deal with a major problem. the first report that came out of it was how positive it was and this would sail through. we'll get it done and w
. >> what about if the president has to choose? gun control -- marco rubio on the republican side, putting forth, it fits well with what the president has to say. >> i think immigration reform is easier. that doesn't mean it's less important, but it's easier, gun safety and gun control will probably come first. that said, it's going to be a heavier lift on gun suppliers. >> you must know a lot about both sides of this, that an immigration deal can get done? not just a weak around the edges kind of thing, but a real long-term fix? >> i believe it will get done. i believe the american people on november 26th gave a mandate for congress to get it done. that's why you see people from both parties speaking out in favor of immigration. >> when we got to the state of texas, in particular, they said within two presidential cycles, the red state would effectively become more democratic and turn purple. do you see that happening? >> i do. for three reasons. texas has done better economically than most states. we had a real influx of folks moving in from other states that are moderating texas, and be
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more
of conservatives. marco rubio of florida, john mccain and lindsay graham were all out there saying the time has come to deal with this in a comprehensive way. >> we heard this before. i have video of chuck schumer saying this will be the last amnesty. we will do it again. look at the debates in 2006. this is the only time. marco rubio said he was not going to support a path to citizenship. they said they were not going to support the program. we have a labor market and we have job displacement and see a lot of americans who were struggling. how is this by giving amnesty and setting off a tidal wave and going to help the average american get a job and better wages and improved working conditions. how will it help the fiscal situation? the bill is a skeletal draft. these guys go into it holding arm and arm like they are going in the tunnel of love. it's like they have been in a lion's den. when you get down to the details, what you see is all the enforcement provisions and things we have on the books anyway. if the president would enforce the law, it's a big bill with a prospect of enforcement wh
a dozen years ago, but some newborn faces like marco rubio who of course is an up and coming conservative who has made this issue one of his own, because of the fact that he too is concerned about the way the republican party is perceived in the latino community. the important thing to keep in mind is this is just the beginning. there are some very divisive issues within the immigration concept that have not yet been worked out. for example, you mentioned at the beginning that this whole idea makes a path to citizenship contingent on border security. they've not worked out yet what the so-called metrics are for how they know the border is secure. that is very, very important. and the devil is, to use a cliche, in the details there. also goes for how they detyfine path to citizenship. >> jessica, you're getting some new information about the white house, the president is planning to propose, maybe as early as tomorrow, when he's in las vegas. >> the difference between the president's plan and what the senate has proposed is the path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants who are here
different direction talking to folks on capitol hill. marco rubio talking about immigration reform. i think they want to get a deal on that, the republicans do. it will be interesting. i think the budget wars will be telling because this is still a huge fight over the role of government, over how much government safety net should be kept versus not. this is the battle that the president wants to have, and whether it's paul ryan or other potential candidates in 2016, you know, that's where a lot is going to be decided many terms of this coalition politics that they want to play in a presidential race. >> paul ryan's moves in williamsburg even before these winter meetings telling the caucus we have to make this deal on the debt ceiling and fight -- live to fight another day, he really is looking more and more like a 2016 possibility because he is trying to recast the posture of the party. >> i don't know where he gets tough sacrifices. what he asked before, and now he wants to do a budget of ten years that will balance the budget. you know, to do that would require even more drastic cuts that
marco rubio probably touched on it. i support and agree with the principles he laid out as far as earned legalization. making sure people don't cut in line but fixing the problem. we did reform in '86 and again in '96. it's a system that's broken that needs fixing. and many of us who have been involved in this issue over the years. immigration is a good thing. that's what america is. it's a melting pot. we think this is good. we need to make sure it works. i think there are republicans and democrats, many of us are talking to each other, that can come together with a good solution to make sure that this problem is fixed. once and for all. and i think those rubio principles do a really good job of adhering to the founding principles, respecting the rule of law, and respecting those who came here for a better life. >> and do you see that getting done this year? >> i do. that's one of the areas where i feel that i think the president has a big speech coming up. the question that many of us are asking, republicans and democrats, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the pro
. this time around the ideas of someone as conservative as marco rubio on board and man as liberal dick durbin on board, this has to be the time this type of legislation gets through. i think there's one area to pay attention to moving forward, toure. and that is this issue of border security. to approve this they want to guarantee that the border is completely secure. how do you gauge that? how does the government gauge that? what can be said in order to make that a reality? guaranteeing drones a fence? something of that issue i think will really be something to focus on moving forward. >> all right. luke always a pleasure. serious luke today, huh? joining us now is republican marsha blackburn who prefers to be called congressman. how are you today, congressman? >> i'm well. i'm well. >> so we have a four-page proposal that republicans are behind or some republicans on the hill are behind. are you on board with the proposal? >> i'm one of those republicans that is -- i'm going to be waiting to see what the details are and bear in mind also we have had a working g
at what we're doing outside of washington, d.c. but on the other hand, you're seeing the marco rubios of the world focus on immigration reform, from his perch on capitol hill. you're seeing paul ryan work on the republicans' budget. so there is that interesting outsider versus insider dynamic going on. >> fascinating. we always say governors are pragmatic, and that seems to be what the divide is right now. i want to bring up something which is fascinating in battleground states. excuse me. republicans in these states, virginia, michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, they control the state legislature, they're trying to move legislation that would make it so it's not winner take all in the electoral college. that it's proportional, so that if you have -- you win via the congressional district, which a lot of republicans are saying, well, it means local control, but take virginia, northern virginia would get the same vote as out near tennessee, which has much less population. what is the purpose behind this? >> look, it's all about giving the republicans a significant advantage in these battlegr
to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan group of senators and the president and everyone stepping on each other trying to get their plan out first, it shows momentum on this issue and it does increase the chance something could get done on this. >> getting it through the house. what do they need from the senate? 89-8 like we saw in the fiscal c
